Janis Ian - Tenderness Lyrics



Everybody needs somebody they love best
Yes, yes, yes
Every heart is searching for a place to rest
Yes, yes, yes
Everybody shares a secret loneliness
Yes, yes, yes
The secret lies in learning how to share the rest
Yes, yes, yes

We all need a little tenderness, tenderness
From the finest mansion to the sparrow's nest
Deep within, it all begins with tenderness
Yes, yes, yes

I used to be an island in a stormy sea
Yes, yes, yes
Miles from the harbor of your company
Yes, yes, yes
I was locked on the rocks, I could not get free
Yes, yes, yes
'Til I felt the waves of kindness washing over me
Yes, yes, yes

We all need a little tenderness, tenderness
From the finest mansion to the sparrow's nest
Deep within, it all begins with tenderness
Yes, yes, yes

We all need a little tenderness, tenderness
From the finest mansion to the sparrow's nest
Deep within, it all begins with tenderness
Yes, yes, yes
Yes, yes, yes
Yes, yes, yes
